The Darkest Minds - The Darkest Minds 1 by Alexandra Bracken
# New York Times and USA Today Best-seller
A disease has spread out through the US and almost every 10 to 12 kids die. The only kids who survived, have some supernatural ability and skills. They are gathered in a mysterious camp to be analyzed and go through experiments. There are different groups due to their powers and skills: Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange, and Red ones. The least dangerous children are in the blue group and the most troublesome and perilous ones are labeled as red. “Ruby” succeeds to cajole the doctors to be selected as the green group members, but actually she’s an orange member. She can manipulate and control other people’s minds and behavior and also read what’s going on in their minds.
As time passes, she becomes aware of the reality behind the camp and its secret plans. With the help of other extraordinary kids, she decides to reveal the truth and escape the others and herself but it’s not that easy.
The first book of the series turned into a successful movie in 2018 and received many positive critics.
